THE new Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport will have the capacity to handle 1.5 million passengers annually when complete, the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe said on Wednesday ahead of the terminal’s opening on Friday.

The terminal has taken more than 10 years and $25 million to refurbish and will have a new international arrivals’ hall, a variety of shops, a car park and a separate State pavilion.

It will still be incomplete when it opens, but CAAZ said the facility will have all the requisite safety, security systems and ambient characteristics of a modern airport.

“Although the terminal is undergoing its final stages of completion, it has become absolutely necessary to operationalise the facility to allow utilisation of the already installed systems,” said CAAZ.

Only two airlines, South Africa Airlink and Air Zimbabwe use the airport. SA Airlink, a South African Airways service, plies the Bulawayo-Johannesburg route daily but has a capacity of 83 passengers.

Air Zimbabwe flies to Harare and the resort town on Victoria Falls.
